Good luck mang.

Did fiver hook you up with the referral?
Nah, was someone else. My buddy Nelson's neighbo(u)r and fellow underachieving asshole. We hit it off.
 
sometimes I feel jealous of Nelson
lol why

I have a phone interview on Monday, moto industry job. I've met the last two people who held that job. Hoping I get it, I think I'd be good at it. 🤞
 
lets go the rock
 
2nd interview tomorrow with my potential boss and his boss. I've met the big boss already so this is promising.

LFG boys :stevie:
I fucking killed it. Couldn't have gone better. 75-minute discussion with the VP of Sales.

Next step is a credit/criminal/reference check, and a fokkin psychometric test.

It's looking decent boys. My only concern is that my credit file is pretty bare right now, I mostly use the joint credit card for which wifey is the main cardholder. Meh. Should be fine.

Let's make some fokkin money boys.

So it's expect to have great credit in order to get a job?
 
Yeah wtf. I guess someone with credit way in the crapper indicates something more problematic (gambling, drugs, something else)? Seems discriminatory.

Certain categories of jobs, yeah. The corporate world is pretty classist that way. Lots of semi-covert gatekeeping.

It is. Isn't it common in lawyerland though? I worked for a law firm for a year and the application process was the most intense I've ever been through. They fucking called my university and 2-year college (CEGEP) to confirm that what I claimed on my resume was true. I studied fucking literature which had nothing to do with the job anyway, lol.
 
Ya I got credit checked back in my working days
 
Can't run a credit check on an employee or prospect in NY cause its racist. I dunno about other states but I bet you can in some.
 
No. Never read his shiz, is what I would've answered.
